What happens if you can't have a penicillin shot for syphilis?

Doxycycline: Doxycycline for 2-4 weeks is recommended if penicillin cannot be given, or sometimes ceftriaxone. However, penicillin is by far the best drug.

If I ate mouldy cheese would the penicillin cure me?

If I ate mouldy cheese would the penicillin cure me?

No: There are lots of types of molds - the one that makes penicillin is just one. The amount of penicillin is very small (too little to do anything) and penicillin is very poorly absorbed into the body from the GI track. I don't know what illness you want to treat with mold, but it won't do much for an infection. ...Read more

Can neurosyphils be cure by intramuscular injections of penicillin once a week for 3 weeks?

Can neurosyphils be cure by intramuscular injections of penicillin once a week for 3 weeks?

Treatment: Treatment Options for Neurosyphilis The antibiotic penicillin is used to treat syphilis and neurosyphilis. It may be injected or taken orally. The usual regimen lasts 10 to 14 days. The antibiotics probenecid and ceftriaxone are often used in conjunction with penicillin. Depending on your case, you may need to stay in the hospital while being treated. During your recovery, you will need blood tests at the three- and six-month marks. After that, you should have blood tests every year following your treatment for three years. Your doctor will continue to monitor your cerebrospinal fluid levels with spinal taps every six months. Neurosyphilis is especially common in HIV-positive people. This is because syphilitic sores make it easier to become infected with HIV. The Treponema pallidum bacteria interact with HIV in a way that makes it harder to treat the syphilis infection. Those with neurosyphilis who are HIV-positive usually need more penicillin injections and have less chance for a complete recovery. ...Read more

If you were unknowingly infected with syphilis and taking penicillin for oral surgery could that inadvertently cure the syphilis infection?

Couldn't hurt: Chances are that the antibiotic will help treat the problem; however, you probably need a longer and stronger dose to cure syphilis. The antibiotic circulates in your blood to fight bacteria. It doesn't really care where the bacteria is in your body. The real question is are you taking a strong enough dose?

So, ask Doc timely for detail. ...Read more
